WordPress Theme Security Issue

As originally posted by Kitchin there is an issue with some WordPress themes as a result of a timthumb.php file vulnerability.

Additional information may be located in the following links:

There has now been a "Timthumb Vulnerability Scanner" developed and information regarding this may be viewed here:

FutureQuest strongly recommends that all Site Owners running WordPress review the above links to determine if their sites may be vulnerable and if so to take the appropriate action.
